10 Things We State About... 

It's Hallowe'en! Well, it was yesterday anyway, but we were to busy sitting with the lights off, studiously ignoring every ring of the bell and every knock of the door to mark the occasion. Instead here, somewhat belatedly, are the ten most horrifying things in music:-

10. Acoustic Guitars
9. Indie bands ruining perfectly good pop songs by performing them on acoustic guitars
8. Indie bands in general, with special reference to the Arctic Monkeys
7. Atomic Kitten (Post-Kerry)
6. The near simultaneous demise of both Smash Hits and Top of the Pops being met with little more than a half hearted shrug.
5. The potential for Pete Doherty and Kate Moss to collaborate on an album.
4. The public's insatiable desire for bland, vaguely tuneful, personality free nobodies on the X Factor. MacDonald Brothers, we're looking at you.
3. Q Magazine
2. The unaccountably successful music career of Jamie Cullum.
1. The smug face gurning above the piano throughout the unaccountably successful music career of Jamie Cullum.
